About Us


Before 1982 there were no local animal shelters or resources available to help the Sonoma community cope with the problem of stray and abandoned animals. This lack of animal services motivated a handful of dedicated animal lovers to create a local animal welfare organization. Thanks to the community, Pets Lifeline was established.

“Pets Lifeline has so much to be thankful for, given its 30-year history caring for the animals in the Sonoma community. None of this is possible without the ardent support of our volunteers, donors and board of directors, not to mention our dedicated staff. We look forward to what the future holds for the next incarnation of Sonoma Valley’s only animal shelter.”
